Supreme Court some days ago, which will, no

is that oI Bigelow vs. .OeForrest;.in which'cer- 1
tain.real .estate in Virginia was seized under f
thc:con?5cation laws and sold, its ?wner being f
adjtigedgullty oftreason. Thatperson'having
since died, his heirs brought suit in ejectment ,
to recover the property. The claim was resist?
ed on the ground that the. title of the original
owner was forfeited by bis ' ?re?s?n, and his
rights in the property thoroughly divested. 1
But the United States Supreme Court-decide 1
tbitit was only his estate duringhls life which I
was divested, and. since his death his heirs I
may recover the property. Thc decision is hi (
accordance with clause two, section three, arti- ?
cle three of tho Constitution of the! United ,
States, which says: "Congress shaU have .
power to declaro the punishment of treason, 1
but no attainder, of treason shall work cor rup- ?

ihJmself to the facts coannected with the homl- J
clde, and to the threatening language which ?

is also believed that he wld endeavor to intro- t

at taking Mr. Richardson's ll>. Mrs Bich- a

little can be ascertained about the linc of th?
defence, Messrs. John Graham, Charles S
Spencer aud Elbridge T. Gerry, thc counsel fo:
the prisoner, having pledged themselves t(
strict secrecy in the matter. It is thought thu
they will make the question of insanity, o:
frenzy, on thc part of thc prisoner at the Ultu
he committed the homicidal act for which hi
is indieted, one o? thc strong points in thc
case: and it ls also said that they will claim
that the deed was justifiable, on thc grount
that an adulterous intimacy existed betwcci
Mr. Richardson and McFarland's wife. Hon
Horace Greeley, vice-President Colfax, Rev
Henry Ward Beecher and Rev. Mr. Frothing
liam arc reported to have received notice frou

The Tariff Question.
The most notable of all the recent speeches
in Congress was delivered by Mr. S. S. Cox, o
New York, on last Monday, bi reference t<
the Tariff bill, now before the House. It wat
at once profound, brilliant and humorous.
Mr. Cox charges the Radicals with bat
faith in refusing to reduce the tarin"-a policj
to which they pledged themselves so soon af
the internal taxes should have been reduced.
The pledge was made in 1864 ; it has nol
yet been redeemed, although last yeal
$150,000,000 were resigned by the interna
revenue, and during the present session
$30,000,000. He contends that this treachery
is ruining the country. Great Britain anti
France prosper by a reduction of their tariffs.
Among us the contrary policy has prevailed
to such an extent that our shipping interest
well nigh rained, so that bounties must b?
invoked to save it, and the sweat, care
and brain of labor are sacrificed for the bene?
fit of greedy monopolists.
The attack upon Mr. Kelley, who repre?
sents the iron aud coal interests of Philadel?
phia, was particularly telling. "If I should
"ask him," exclaimed Mr. Cox, "do you op?
pose all foreign competition with what we
"can produce against cheaper foreign pro?
duction, he would say : 'Yes.' If I ask
"again : If the article from abroad were
"fabulously low, 30 as to injure home trade
"and production, would you restrict and
"prohibit? 'By all means.' Then I read to
"him Bastrat's fable, with ray new glossary,
"ne would close all windows, sky-lights,
"shutters, curtains, bliud3, bull's-eyes, open?
ings, chinks, clefts and fissures, whereby
"the sun enters to the prejudice of the merito
"rious home manufacturer of candles, lamps,
' camile sticks, street lamps, matches, ex?
tinguishers, and the producers of oil, tal?
low, rosin and alcohol! He ask3 to shut
"out the sun as a free trader, denounces his
"cheap and plentiful light u3 destructivo of
'.home indastry. He would guard the home
"market from this British gold-bought in
"truder! That luminary has no right to
"compete with Pennsylvania coal ga3. His
"labor is cheap-pauper labor. Half our
"time he inundates U3 with beams. If Joshua
"should command the sun to stand still
"over Philadelphia, thc coal ga3 business
"would be ruined! Our home market is
"already glutted with this commodity. "When
"he appears, the market for candle sticks
"and gas burners trembles to ita fall. Con?
sumers greet him-as if he wore not an
"alien ! Quench his lischt, and artificial
"light will be in demand, nis interference
"is not limited, ne strikes at agriculture.
"Tallow i3 a drug. Oxen and sheep are af?
fected. It i3 a foul blow at meadow, meat,
"wool, hides, manure. He plugs up the oil
"well. He interferes with the harpoon trade,
"and thus interferes with thc price of iron.
"The very whales will blubber no more over
"their lost lights. He invades, though
"feebly, Alaska. There are fifteen thousand
"Alents depending on 6eal catching for oil,
"itc. The sealmen of Pribalov are appalled.
"They applaud the efforts of the gentleman.
"Even the four million of seals-bulls and
"cows-meet cn Tnasse, to extend their flip
"per3 to the gentleman. What, too, becomes
"of the gildings, bronzes, crystals, lamps, In
"gorgeous saloons? Close the dome of this
"Capitol from the light. Lot oar ceilings,
"so richly escutcheoned, only bc illumined
"from Pennsylvania gai ; even as they are
"set in Pennsylvania iron! Build an opaque
"roof-ribbed with Pennsylvania steel-over
"the land, regardlessofexpen.se, that every
"coal bank in Pennsylvania may furnish,
"and no Nova Scotian bank shall compete,
"for the coal to be consumed or thc gas to
"bc made. And then there is thc match bu?
siness. Shall that bc forever discouraged,
"my sunbeams? Forbid it, Almighty Con
"gress. Reject the gratuities of God ; reject
"wealth, comfort abundance, cheapness
"every thing foreign which interferes with
"our artificial production, at higher cost !
"Thegentleman, to be consistent, must pen?
sion his people or others against the laws
"of nature and the divine economies."
This was bad enough ; but the merciless
Congressman went on to show that his
tariff-loving brother was opposed, not only
to the laws of nature, but what is more se?
rious to an American politician, to the prin?
cipal of equality. It was shown that he was '
robbing from the farmer's plough, the black?
smiths' anvil, the carpenter's adze, the wood
nan's axe, the merchant's steamship. Ile
?vas making our commerce a pauper, and
lelping the Clyde builders to countless mil
ions. He would not even allow the Indiana
armer to sell his surplus corn to England
br two blankets, but would keep him shir?
ring with one. "Equality," said Mr. Cox,
'is justice ; inequality is protection, and
'protection ?3 robbery."
The effect of the speech, from which we
nake these brief extracta, may be judged by
;he met that Mr. Gilfillan, of Pennsylvania,
?efusod to allow Mr. Cox an extension of
;ime to finish his argument The latter had
>nly time to substantiate his principles by
ihowing the effect of the tariff in enhancing
he cost of two articles of prime necessity- J
ron and salt It was due to the speaker
md to his great theme that he should have
>eeu fully heard and fairly answered.
But what he has said is enough to raise a i
tomi all over the country. Will the J
ron-users of America-and who does not be-? I
ong to this class-remain indifferent when ;
hey learn that for every $100 worth of iin
)orted pig iron they are compelled to pay ?
ast $207 01? How can the American steam- \
hip thrive, or any , interest or industry de- :
>endent upon cheap iron, when so oppres
ive a burden is imposed upon them-when J
he price of the raw material makes its ?
?onomical use Impossible ? This question, ]
.t least, Mr. Cox has succeeded in bringing 8
airly before tl.e country. j
A Universal Library.
It is not given to all thc workers in the
paths of literature to win both famo and for?
tune. There arc men who toil for years
without expedition of popular praise, und
of tbcso the most zealous und unselfish are
they who prepare the compendiums and
books of reference, which, in this day of uni?
versal information, if not of universal know?
ledge, play an important part in every well
regulated literary household. Living, as wc
de, at high pressure, it i3 impossible to
master cveu the broad outlines of nil the
ologies and isms of the century. But a rest?
less curiosity, a spirit of emulation, and the
exigencies of society, politics and trade,
impel every citizen to be in readiness to ex?
plain and comprehend every moot point
which a word or an event may bring to his
attention. These considerations apply with
equal force to the merchant, the professional
man and the mechanic; for every day prac?
tical questions arise which cannot be
answered off-hand, but which, if books of
reference are nigh, may be made an impor?
tant mean3 of adding to the stock of useful
knowledge and technical information.
What is most needed, then, i3 a work
which will embrace thc most important facts
upon every subject, so arranged that any
one of them may be easily found, and pre?
pared so carefully that it may be accepted
a3 a standard authority. Such a work is
Ute ''New American Encyclopaedia," edited
by Charles A. Dana and George Ripley, and
published by D. Appleton & Co., of New
York, a firm honorably pre-eminent, for the
reason that no work has issued from their
presses containing any abuse or slander of !
the South, as well as because of their muni?
ficent donations of money and of books to
the cause of Southern education.
The "New American Encyclopaedia" bas
been prepared at a co3t of $100,000, and
presents a panoramic view of all human
knowledge, as it exi3ts at the present mo?
ment. It treats of all tho branches of Art
and Science, of Agriculture, Commerce and
Manufactures, Law, Medicine and Theology,
Biography, History and Geography, as well
as Political Economy and General Litera?
ture. In a word, it is a library in itself,
wherein are expounded and discussed all
matters human and inhuman, from Shakes?
peare to a locomotive. And the whole work
is thoroughly impartial. Between religions,
men and institutions the balance is held
with an even and impartial hand. The work
ha? been prepared with scrupulous care,
several hundred writers having been engaged
in the different departments. As it stands,
it is a model of taste, learning and cheap?
ness-a work which covers the whole wide
field of knowledge, and does full justice
to the claims, resources and genius of our
own sunny South-a work, we may add,
which the Hon. Alexander H. Stephens, in a
recent letter, pronounces superior to all
ol'ner Encyclopaedias, and which Bishop
Beckwith styles "the most valuable treasury

Captain Alfred L. Tyler has formally ac?
cepted the position of vice-president of the
Soffth Carolina Railroad Company, and
upon his return to Charleston from New
York, will enter upon the discharge of his
important and onerous duties.
The prospects of the road are remarkably
?ood. With the completion of the Macon and
Augusta Railroad in June next, a vast field
will be thrown open to the South Carolina
Railroad, which must largely increase
its business; and the proposed exten?
sion of the line, in Charleston, to the water
front will enable the company to carry on
its huge operations with the closest economy
and quickest dispatch. As an indication of
what the South Carolina Railroad Company
is now doing, wc may remark that its up
freight business for the month of March was,
in quantity and in amount of money, tho
largest month's business had since the close
of thc war.

GREAT REDUCTION IN PRICES.
QUALITY STILL FURTHER IMPROVED.
We beg leave respectfully to call the attention,
of the public to our Superior Flavoring Extracts.
As ten years have now elapsed since we first ln
trodne.ed them to the notice of the American pub?
lic, we deem it unnecessary at present to enter
Into a lengthy description of their merits, Ac
There ls hardly a etty or town of any note in the
country into which they have not found then:
way. The reason of this widespread popularity
and dally increasing demand ls owing entirely to
their peculiar excellence and intrinsic. worth.
Being determined to make them the Standard Ex?
tracts of the day, we have still further Improved
their quality, and now we firmly and honestly be?
lieve that they stand without a rival. Our Vanilla
Extract cannot be surpassed for richness and
delicacy or flavor. It is a strictly pure and high?
ly concentrated Extract of Vanilla Beans. In
short, wc think lt the best that ls made, at least,
this ls the decision of the best Judges in the coun?
try. We don't pretend to compete in price with
many of the so-called Flavoring Extracts of the
day. which are really but worthless compounds,
undeserving of the name.
For quality and style, we defy competition.
